About Our Firm

Vail Cross Euteneier Partners

The Law Office of David B. Vail was founded on July 1, 1977.  The firm was established by David B. Vail in response to the plight of the injured and disabled.  Since 1977, the firm has remained dedicated to being a voice for those unable to advocate for themselves.   Our practice specializes in Workers' Compensation claims, Social Security Disability claims, and Personal Injury cases.

The Law Office of David B. Vail and Associates has developed a reputation for taking on the hard cases that other law firms turn away.  David built his firm on the philosophy that he and his employees pursue for each client the benefits and compensation they are entitled to.  The Firm’s philosophy is based upon the desire that each of our clients survive financially and emotionally.  Each employee is dedicated to exhausting all avenues when advocating for our clients.  David’s ability to see beyond the obvious has helped establish his reputation for thinking outside of the box.

In 2005, Jennifer Cross-Euteneier became a partner and the firm became Vail, Cross-Euteneier & Associates.  Over the years, the practice has continued to grow and we remain dedicated to helping those individuals unable to advocate for themselves.  Jennifer continues propagating David’s philosophy and remains passionate about her work. Her philosophy for the continuation of the firm is summed up below.

If there is one thing I have learned from working with David Vail (and believe me I have learned a lot), it is that every avenue must be investigated, every rock must be overturned and every procedural step evaluated on every client’s claim to ensure that the rights of injured workers are protected and that the Department and / or Self-Insured Employer are held to a high standard of claims administration. This scrutiny is necessary to effectuate the policies underlying the Industrial Insurance Act. The way our office pursues claims is based squarely upon David’s dedication to those who need representation the most. Whether or not we will fail in our struggle to protect those rights is not a consideration. Our office is always determined to push forward based upon the belief that the injured worker’s rights must always be protected. For those of us who work in the world of Title 51, the quote by Abraham Lincoln is very appropriate.

“The probability that we may fail in struggle ought not to deter us from the support of a cause we believe to be just.” — Abraham Lincoln

The protection of injured workers' rights must be paramount in today’s political climate wherein the rights of the individual seem to be dissolving. — JMC

Our Firm continues to be an active participant in legislation relating to Workers' Compensation Benefits in Washington State, and Social Security Disability.
